Independent Study Program

About Independent Study

Journey School’s Independent Study is a voluntary educational program that gives parents the opportunity to educate their child from home with professional guidance from a Waldorf-certified supervising teacher. Assignments, materials, and support are provided to assist parents with instruction to help ensure student success. Independent Study program is currently available for students in Kindergarten through Grade 3.

Our Independent Study program also offers a Kindergarten Hybrid program. The home-based hybrid kindergarten will allows children to participate in cooperative outdoor activities 2 days a week.  Students engage in morning song, poetry, movement, nature walks, creative play, snack time, and story.

Journey School supports Independent Study families with monthly curriculum nights, a summer workshop, a resource library, access to other parents in the program and an experienced supervising teacher who is state credentialed and Waldorf certificated.

If you are interested in learning more about this program, adult-only Information Sessions will be offered on select dates through the end of the school year. Please contact Alyson Smith at for more information.
